In our Centennial progress reports, we offer as much information as we possibly can on the fiber network build process. We’ll also talk about Ting events, promotions and some of the work we’re doing in the Centennial community. Check back regularly to keep up to date on the latest.
In our last construction update, we filled you in on continued construction in Phase 1A and 1B and announced Phase 1C would be coming soon in Willow Creek 3 and Willow West.
Today, we’ll provide an update on those three areas of Phase 1 where fiber network construction is currently underway.
Phase 1A: Willow Creek 1 and 2
Construction is almost finished up in Phase 1A and we’ve started blowing fiber. For a look at fiber blowing and more information about the process check out our behind the scenes video from another Ting Town, Holly Springs, NC.
Blowing fiber is a process where we route fiber through the underground conduit we placed earlier in construction. When we’re blowing fiber, we’re actually running fiber across long distances, often without the need to dig.
After blowing fiber, the next step is to start connecting people to the network. We’ll be lighting our first customers soon.
Stay tuned and check back for our next construction update, coming in September 2018.
You can read more about the technical parts of blowing fiber in another Ting Town, Holly Springs, NC.
Phase 1B: Walnut Hills and Hunters Hill
Construction continues in Walnut Hills. Don’t forget, the deadline to pre-order for Phase 1B Walnut Hills is coming up on July 31, 2018.
Your pre-order is a one time refundable $9 charge that is returned to you on your first Ting bill. It also gets you $250 off your startup costs on Ting gigabit service. That completely covers installation in most cases, with $50 leftover to put towards the purchase of your router or your first Ting bill.
Construction is coming soon to Hunters Hill. Pre-order to secure your installation discount!
Phase 1C: Willow Creek 3 and Willow West
Construction is set to start this month in Phase 1C. If you live in Phase 1C expect a notice in the mail from Ting detailing everything you can expect from construction in your neighborhood.
Don’t forget, the deadline to pre-order for Phase 1C Willow Creek 3 and Willow West is October 31, 2018.
Didn’t see your neighborhood?
You can still pre-order Ting. Pre-orders are one factor that help us determine where we build next.
Ting around town
Ting is a proud sponsor of the Willow Creek 1 Barracudas swim team!
The Ting banner was proudly displayed at the local swim meets and we’re looking forward to sponsoring the end of season banquet as well.
In July, Ting hosted one of our community events for the Walnut Hills and Hunters Hill neighborhoods.
The event included a bouncy castle, balloon artist, face painter and lots of great food from local food trucks.
Thanks to everyone who came out and talked to us about crazy fast fiber Internet.
